<civodul>rekado: thanks a lot for going this far <civodul>apologies for not going anywhere :-/ <rekado>python-jupyterlab-server and python-doubletdetection both fail with an error like this: ERROR: jupyterlab-server==2.12.0 InvalidRequirement('Expected end or semicolon (after version specifier)\n tinycss2>=1.1.0<1.2\n ~~~~~~~^') <rekado>I don’t see any mention of tinycss2 in the code, so this must be generated from the inputs <rekado>I suppose one of the inputs has an invalid requirements list <rekado>python-ipydatawidgets fails in the same way <rekado>they all have python-nbconvert in common <zimoun>And again, « I neeed to install Conda because X » <zimoun>where X is already part of Guix. <zimoun>But only because someone™ said « Install Conda and done » <zimoun>Argh, and I have spent hours to explain how to use Guix. <zimoun>Wow! 861M Anaconda3-2023.03-1-Linux-x86_64.sh <zimoun>tiny script that I can audit ;-) <rekado>this is a common way of distributing self-installing tarballs <rekado>there’s a preamble that’s the actual script, a separator, and then binary data (often a tarball) <rekado>the script cuts itself in two and unpacks the tarball <zimoun>rekado: Recently, you were doubtful about the usefulness of your work around bootstrapping GHC. Here a blog post that shows you opened the road. :-) <rekado>I tried something different back then: split modules so that they are no longer mutually recursive <rekado>this got me past the initial hurdle, but I ran into a different wall: GHC depends on types implemented in the GHC runtime system (RTS), and Hugs cannot use GHC’s RTS. <rekado>(that idea was sent to me by joey hess) <zimoun>Well, if I read correctly, 6.12.3 and 7.4.2 are missing to have a complete chain from 4.08.2 to 9.2.5 (or 9.4.4). <zimoun>however 4.08.2 built using old GCC still needs outputs from previous GHC. <rekado>I haven’t been able to build more recent GHCs with the existing chain from 4.08.2 <zimoun>Do you mean build 6.12.3 using 6.10.4? <rekado>whichever is the next one; I forget <rekado>I just looked at my WIP stash for haskell: yes, I failed to build 6.12.3 with ghc-6.10 <zimoun>Damned! Why there are so many blocks on the road? :-) <civodul>you'd hope that GHC developers would think about a bootstrapping technique that does not involve "archeology" <civodul>at least so they can compete with OCaml <rekado>I don’t think they have any interest in anything other than pushing forward.
